What impact does Mud Volleyball have on Charlotte?

The money raised from Habitat Mud Volleyball will support Habitat Charlotte’s affordable housing programs, and help provide safe, decent homes for low-income families in Charlotte. All funds from the tournament go directly to Habitat Young Professionals' (HYP) goal of sponsoring of a new Habitat home – a $75,000 commitment. Thank you! We can't do it without your support!

Who the heck is Murphy?

"Murphy’s Dirty 30" Mud Volleyball Tournament (now known as Habitat Mud Volleyball) was conceptualized by Tim Murphy and a few of his friends in 2007. With his 30th birthday looming, Murphy and his buddies brainstormed ways to celebrate the landmark day and decided that for his “Dirty 30” they would throw a Mud Volleyball tournament. After further discussion they decided the event would be even better if they could raise money for Habitat For Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte

Habitat Charlotte builds and rehabilitates affordable homes for low-income families who currently live in inadequate, often overcrowded housing conditions. Habitat Charlotte works in partnership with families who demonstrate the need for housing, the ability to pay a no-interest monthly mortgage, and also a willingness to partner by putting in hundreds of hours of their own sweat equity. Home ownership is arguably one of the most important aspects of a sustainable, vibrant community. To find out more about Habitat Charlotte’s work, click here.

Habitat Young Professionals of Charlotte

Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) seeks to combat poverty by supporting and helping Habitat Charlotte build and preserve affordable housing for low-income families. And it's also a great source for networking and cultivating new friendships. HYP members are motivated to make a positive impact in Charlotte and have fun in the process!
